Mumbai, Jan 28 (IANS) Actress Mallika Sherawat, who is playing the lead in "Dirty Politics", says her brother has received threat calls because she is doing the film based on the alleged murder of Bhanwari Devi by a politician from Rajasthan.

"Yes, we have received threat calls. Somebody called my brother and said, 'Ask your sister to stay out of this topic'. The threat call was received by my brother and not me," Mallika told reporters Monday during the press conference of "Dirty Politics".

Malika, one of the most outspoken actresses in filmdom, says one has to play dirty politics to survive in the country.

"Every actor or actress is a victim of politics. Every day you have to do politics. To survive in India, you have to do politics. I have played both dirty and good politics. The dirtier the better," said the "Murder" fame actress.

Being directed by K.C. Bokadia, Mallika is paired with Om Puri in the film.

"It's a very bold role and I am not trying to change my image with the film. I am very happy with my image. The film is inspired from Bhanwari Devi. It's based on a scandal," said the actress known for her bold role in "Khwahish", where she had 17 kissing scenes with co-star Himanshu Malik.

The title of the film sounds similar to the title of Vidya Balan-starrer "The Dirty Picture", but Mallika says no one can compete with the former.

"She is a very fine actress, I can't compete with her. She is a great actress and I take inspiration from her."
